Police are on the lookout for an Aurora woman who is now facing multiple felony charges for allegedly creating unauthorized cell phone accounts from information she gathered in a Walmart kiosk.
According to a Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office news release, State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged 31-year-old Aida B. Gonzalez with the offenses of:
- Identity theft ($10,000-$100,000), a Class 1 felony
- Theft ($10,000-$100,000), a Class 2 felony
- Theft by deception ($10,000-$100,000), a Class 2 felony
- 10 counts of identity theft ($300-$2,000), a Class 3 felony
Kane County prosecutors allege that multiple times between December 2019 and January 2020, while representing a separate business in a kiosk at Walmart, 2900 Kirk Road, Aurora, Gonzalez used the personal identifying information of 10 victims to fraudulently establish lines of credit, cell phone accounts and purchase cell phones for unauthorized individuals.
The total amount taken from the 10 victims is $10,715.14.
Judge Julio Cesar Valdez signed a warrant for Gonzalez’s arrest and set her bail at $15,000 with 10 percent ($1,500) to apply for bond.
Gonzalez is not in custody. Anyone with information about Gonzalez or this case should call Aurora police at 630-256-5536.
The Aurora Police Department conducted the investigation.
The charges against Gonzalez are not proof of guilt. Gonzalez is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
